We developed a 4times4 high-speed optical switch subsystem with variable optical attenuation (VOA). This switch subsystem allows high-speed level adjustment as well as high-speed switching by using the electro-optic (EO) effect of PLZT. We demonstrate 5.5-mus switching with VOA to obtain the desired output power for optical burst switching (OBS)
